    Making a page the default page in Firefox?

    Hi, I found a way to do this in IE but is this possible to do in Firefox aswell?

    I mean when a user chooses to make it his default page by clicking on a link.

    Only Internet Explorer allows web pages to hijack the browser home page (unless you disable it before a hijacker does it for you).

    It is not intended to support this, it is a bug!

    You can easily fix the IE bug by running a minor update to your registry. See http://www.felgall.com/brsie26.htm for the code needed to do it.

    It would be annoying to do that.

    I would create a link to the homepage, set its cursor to default, and onclick to return false. And then say "drag this link to your home button in your browser to make it your homepage!" It works for me on my old website.
